THE Little Pod association are organising a Dog Show at El Rancho, Los Montesinos on November 7.

Little Pod is a registered charity based in Torremendo that raises funds to help animals in the Orihuela Costa region, relying solely on donations.

“Our sponsor is Ibex Insurance Company who always support us as a charity,” said Little Pod’s Linda Coleman.  “Ricky Neil will be our guest host for the day, with judges from Dog Training Costa Blanca.”


The show begins at 12 noon with registration beginning at 10.30am for the show’s 11 classes which include Best Rescue, Dog Most Like Its Owner and Waggiest Tail.

Every class will have trophies and rosettes and to ensure that nobody loses, there is a Lucky Dip with doggie prizes.

There will be over 30 market stalls and, of course, the Little Pod Association’s Tombola and Play Your Cards Right.

Wendy Gould, who will be there with her Posh Paws Dog Grooming Table and Nail Clipping from 10.30a, has kindly a €25 euro Grooming voucher for the winner of the Puppy class.

Food and drink, from main meals to quick snacks, will be available from the restaurant.

“We hope you come and join us for this fun-filled day,” Linda said.  “Your support is, as ever, appreciated in these difficult times.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
